Birmingham City supporters call for Paul Caddis to start

Birmingham City's Paul Caddis has not played in any of the side's last three matches.

Birmingham City fans have expressed their anger at Gary Rowett for dropping Paul Caddis from their starting line-up in favour of Ryan Shotton over recent weeks.

Shotton has joined the Blues on loan from Derby County until the end of the campaign, and Caddis has had to drop out of Rowett’s team to make way for the former Stoke City man.

The 27-year-old has not featured in any of Birmingham’s last three matches, but supporters of the Midlands club feel that they looked stronger with him in their team.

Caddis’s omission against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday has caused particular frustration, as the Blues were so far short of their best at Loftus Road.

Birmingham were beaten 2-0 by QPR, and their performance fell well short of expectations.

Rowett’s men rarely threatened throughout the contest, as they fell to a very disappointing defeat which seriously damages their promotion chances.

Birmingham are now four points away from the play-off places, and their form has dipped over the past month.

Some Blues fan feel feel part of the reason for this is due to Rowett’s team selections, and they have made their feelings known on social media site Twitter.
